WALKING FOR A CAUSE...AND SOMETIMES JUST BECAUSE

Speedy Gonzalez ;)

6-7-10 & 6-9-10


Not sure what happened that I didn't post my walk on Monday; the Spouse Thingy and I walked for frozen yogurt, and because I knew it was going to be a short walk, I went for speed, trying to up my pathetic 2.8 mph typical pace.

And woohoo, I hit a 3.2 mph average pace. This is what happens when you dangle a treat in front of me.

Kind of like a certain feline...

Tonight I did basically the same thing, going for speed, and did 3.65 miles at a 3.1 mph pace. Since this is a light week according to the training schedule, increasing my pace is what I'll mainly be working on. Yesterday we walked around a museum (and had to park half a mile from it, so that totally counts) and tomorrow I'll probably shoot for 4 miles and a better than 3 mph pace.

Not sure what I'll do about my long days this week; I'm booked on Saturday so I may try to squeeze in 6 on Friday...but we'll see. I have to admit I've been sleeping like crap lately and it's starting to wear on me. Cramps from hell aren't helping either.

I think someone will have to dangle chocolate in front of me tomorrow...that's work. Chocolate. And maybe pizza.

Nice job Speedy!
The weather has been cooler here just outside of the Big Apple. The 90+ degree heat just about did me in last weekend.
The temperature is supposed to go back up just in time for the weekend. Can't an old gal catch a break!?
Just wonderin.
